The Fryer’s Cove vineyards are situated at Bamboes Bay on the West Coast 300km from Cape Town. The Sauvignon Blanc under this label is well known but there’s also a Pinot Noir. The 2011spent 11 months in a combination of new, second- and third-fill barrels and has a retail price of approximately R160 a bottle. I found it delicate, maybe too much so – nice red cherry flavour, bright acidity, no real tannic grip. Score: 15.5/20.
